TalkTalk, the home phone, broadband and mobile company, has today announced the launch of its 500 Global Minutes Boost product. Customers will get 500 minutes of calls from their landline to 100 international destinations, including both mobile and landline numbers, for just £5, without the hassle of using calling cards or international mobile SIMs.

Customers will be able to use their minutes anytime of the day or night and will be able to manage their minutes online through the My Accountfacility. At just 1p per minute, the Global Minutes Boost provides the UK’s best value landline calls to 100 international destinations (compared to BT, Virgin, Sky and Plusnet).

Destinations covered by the Global Minute Boost include India, Pakistan, South Africa, and Brazil, as well as top European destinations, the USA, Canada and Australia. TalkTalk customers can make significant savings by using the Global Minute Boost; for example, it costs over 50p a minute to call an India mobile from a BT landline, but TalkTalk customers can now enjoy prices of just 1p per minute.

Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director TalkTalk said: “At TalkTalk we think everyone should be able to keep in touch with their friends and family around the world without it costing the earth. The 500 Global Minutes Boost will mean our customers will be able to enjoy the UK’s best value landline calls to international destinations”. To find our more visit
